Public Still Views Trump Negatively On Many Qualities
The Economist / YouGov Poll did another of their weekly survey's between November 19th and 22nd of a random national percentage of 1,434 adults (including 1,194 registered voters). The margin of error was 3.1 points (3.2 points for registered voters). Much of the poll was on what the public thinks of Donald Trump.
He did score well on some of the adjectives used to describe him -- Hard-working (56%), Successful (63%), patriotic (50%), Tough (60%), and Smart (55%). But there were other adjectives used to describe him that were not so good at all.
A margin of 20 view him as dangerous (51%-31%). He is viewed as corrupt by a 6 point margin (42%-36%). He is not viewed as compassionate by a 27 point margin (26%-53%). He is viewed as racist by a 14 point margin (49%-35%). He is not viewed as being consistent by a 12 point margin (33%-45%). He is viewed as not being qualified by a 20 point margin (40%-60%). He is not viewed as caring about people by a 13 point margin (40%-53%). And he is not viewed as having a presidential temperament by a 16 point margin (34%-50%).
It looks to me like Trump still has a long way to go to win over the general public.
